In March Natalie Gertz went to an island to help another team with house building. Also revisiting the three ladies who had become part of God’s family at the beginning of the year was a real encouragement. They are growing and walking with the Lord.
Then the wood slabbing for the houses in the village started while Natalie was working in the clinic until planned allocation, and team member André put up his house.
On the 27th May Natalie got engaged to Philip Hansen.
Natalie is still working in the NTM clinic in Goroka and the doctor is challenging her to learn more for living in the bush.
Natalie’s brother Ede, her cousin Daniel and Benni from her church were supposed to visit in July to help her build her house. Pray that God will show them another project that they can help with during their time as Natalie will no longer be joining the team in the village.
Philip and Natalie are planning to fly to Germany at the end of August and to get married this autumn. Then they want to spend some time with family and churches. Their vision stays the same.
Now they just want to serve God together and be part of a church planting team. So please keep praying with them.
